The Coverage Report in Google Search Console is used to show which URLs on a given domain have been indexed, as well as which have been encountered but not indexed.
For those that are on the not indexed list, there is a reason provided for why the URL in question was not able to be added into Google’s index, so that marketers & webmasters can fix them & re-submit them for indexation.
Understanding The Coverage Report In Search Console Portals
The coverage report is a great way to audit how effective your website’s directives are working.
When first loaded, users can select to look at Indexed Pages, Error Pages, Valid With Warning Pages & Excluded Pages.
Error Pages are pages that can’t be indexed because of an error that was encountered when trying to access the content.
Valid With Warning Pages are appearing in search results, but have some errors on them that indicate that they may not be intended for search.
Excluded Pages are pages that are not indexed but that search engines have determined are likely not supposed to be indexed.
Webmasters should regularly check these reports, in order to be sure that all of their content is properly indexed or not.
Each type of example above is also viewable & exportable, making it easy to quickly work to identify any issues.
